Risk assessments are crucial to minimise any kind of risk which might occur during events. A risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork , but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the risks during your events. In order to control the risk you need to think about what might cause harm to people and what steps you are taking in order to prevent that harm.
These are questions you need to answer on the generic risk assessment form and send it to your local HISA team. Please get in touch, if you're not sure how to fill this out. The risk assessment can be found here.
